Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok, so as my name says, I hate windows. I am now using Red Hat 9.0.
I have (I think) installed the Java VM, but I get:
Warning: -Xmx100331648 not understood. Ignoring.
Warning: -Xms16777216 not understood. Ignoring.
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Unexpected exception while defining class ZeroGq: java.lang.ClassNo
when I try to install Limewire. Thanks for the help.
Tried again (./j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm) said yes, then A (all).
Then i type "rpm -ivh j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm" and it says already installed. I then "rm j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm" and go and "./j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm".
Still no dice. Should I download it again? I thought I was the shizznit when I got active-x to install, now I realize how little I know!
no, just give up for now and try a different application. if you want a fast decent and NATIVE gnutella client, try gtk-gnutella.sf.net it will install fine first time i promise. Limewire is one of the apps most newbies want to use, but it can be so so hard to get java working. of course once someone knows how to set up java, they no longer want limewire as they've found that much better native clients exist.
you might also want to try gift.sf.net which allows you to connect to gnutella, onenFT and fattrack (kazaa) all at the same time.
Not to throw you off topic, but I personally think gtk-gnutella would be much easier for you. For one, it doesn't use java. And second, it also comes in a very convinient RPM for your RH box that makes installation a snap. It also uses the same "backbone" as limewire, so you are really on the same network - only using some (in my opinion) easier software.
